How to run a Tournament in SE?

Recommended Posts

I am seeking instructions on how to properly set up a Tournament in SportsEngine.  There is a marketing page dedicated to this (https://www.sportsengine.com/solutions/capabilities/organize/tournaments) however I am not finding anything within SE HQ that aligns to these needs.  I also cannot find any online instructions or posts within this community about the steps to set one up.  Help?

Hi Jason, 

Excellent question - the tournament solution within SportsEngine HQ is set up to best operate in tandem with TourneyMachine. You can register players, create teams and then integrate those teams over to TourneyMachine to generate games, schedules and manage operations. TourneyMachine is a part of the SportsEngine family and is a top-rated solution to run and manage tournaments. We had a solution within SportsEngine HQ in the past, but TourneyMachine is the far superior option. 

Our Product team is currently in the works of creating a more integrated experience that should be delivered in 2024. 

Let me know if it would be helpful to get you in touch with your account manager to help you work through a solution here!

Jason, I'm there with you on this question. Marie, we've used tourney machine in the past and I rolled over the registration this year to the SE site as a new registration. Sounds like your advice on scheduling is we still need to use tourney machine for schedules. Won't that force everyone to download a run a separate app just for the tournament? Does that mean we then need to pay for the tourney machine just for scheduling? Any advice would be great.

Thank you,

Rob

We have a similar (maybe somewhat different) question. We run an in-house tournament for our house league at the end of every spring season. In the past our sports management app let us build a bracket for this with our house teams in every division that we needed it for as part of that app. Tourney Machine would be overkill for this, but HQ doesn't have the bracket feature. It's not strictly necessary, but it was a slick tool our members appreciated.

Hi @freezinKT,  at this time, you would still need both apps, but our team is working to roll out single sign-on soon to allow easier access to jump from one app to the other. In addition, we've shared the integration and single solution feedback with our team, who is feverishly working to make the app more progressive in the future. Stay tuned for more updates!
